A while ago, we got some money from Intel, Google and HP for new machines for freedesktop.org. Due to various logistical problems, it has taken us far too long to actually start using those, but we're now in the process of doing so.
The first service to move to the new infrastructure is cgit. As part of this transition, we'll also be retiring some old services, amongst those are:
- gitweb; we have cgit and gitweb does not see much traffic
- cvs; nothing still lives in CVS. We will keep the directories around for the foreseeable future
- svn; nothing uses this any longer. We will keep the directories around for the foreseeable future
We might also retire ftp.freedesktop.org, but that is not yet decided. The rationale being that HTTP is widespread and works well for handling downloads. For mirroring, rsync is better suited than ftp
Additionally, over the weekend we'll move bugzilla to the new hosts as well, something that should improve performance quite a bit, but it means bugzilla might be unavailable sometimes during the weekend.
